    Default Security update for Thunderbird? to version 31?

    I'm using openSUSE 12.3

    A security notice came out last week from CERT regarding security issues with Firefox and Thunderbird, and the recommendation was to upgrade to version 31 for each. About a day later, I got an update for FIrefox to ver 31, but nothing for Thunderbird. Can we get a status update on this? If nothing is planned, I'll get it direct from Mozilla.

    Thanks...

    Mozilla repo has 31.

    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_12.3/
    .: miuku #suse @ irc.freenode.net
    :: miuku@opensuse.org

    .: h​ttps://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Miuku/

    Yes, it's likely that you not subscribed to the Mozilla repo, as Miuku already hinted at. (The official update repo is still at 24.6.0 though.)

    Why?

    Thunderbird 24.7.0 was released by Mozilla at the same time Thunderbird 31.0 was released.

    Mozilla offered an ESR (extended support release) version which is currently supported with security patches released as required. There has been a recent shift to merge the ESR version into the stable release.

    The following wiki page illustrates how it was at the time

    You are correct -- I was not and added this as a repo. I had done this in the past and everything was great! Unfortunately, when I added this repo, there was no Thunderbird 31 binary only development items. I will keep my eye on all this though. Thanks for your answers.

    OK I've now added the Mozilla repo -- again! -- with a priority of 10 and it still doesn't seem to get picked up, so no additional versions of any Mozilla products show up in Yast in Software Maintenance. Any ideas about how to fix this one? I have had this happen before actually and don't exactly recall what I did to fix it.

    The other repos I've added are all fine (I think).

    You need to do a vendor change to the new repo. Or just go to yast and install the newer version (hint use the version tab)

    The package is there.

    Remember that adding a repo doesn't mean you automatically get updated
    to its contents. You have to do the vendor change thing...
